Welcome to 5SL
Homework will be sent home nightly. Please check planners every night. I use this as a way of communication. Homework is expected to be turned in the next day unless stated otherwise. If it is a bigger project, or has special instructions, a note will be written in the planner. I like to send emails home about bigger assignments. This way parents know what is going on.
I understand extracurricular activities can make your night busy. I will try not to load a lot of homework in one night. The point of homework in my class is to review skills from the day. This is also a great way for you to see how your son/daughter is progressing. If the homework is not done on the day it is due they will be written in the behavior binder.
Monday will be the Spelling Pre-test and Friday will be the Spelling Post-test. All other subjects’ students will have a week notice for an upcoming test. If you need the spelling words for the week please click the link http://www.spellingcity.com/sashapeterson7/
Every Week students are expected to make corrections on their Reading Test. These are due on Tuesday. They are required to do corrections if they score below a C.
I will update grades every Wednesday on JMC.
If your son/daughter is written in the behavior binder 3 times in one day they will have to serve a detention. Depending on the severity of the issue will determine the length of the detention.
This is a new and exciting time for your son/daughter! They will be competing in a speech competition. We will be working in class on this but it is also expected that they work on this outside of class. Please look out for material regarding this! It will be sent home before Christmas break.
